If you’re thinking about eloping in a beautiful place somewhere in the world you’ve undoubtedly come across the term “adventure elopement”. Despite being certain you want to do something out of the box for your wedding day, once again you’re being boxed in by this new term. Now you’re trying to navigate where you fall into the spectrum of outdoorsy-ness and getting lost in a sea of options. Enter ME. Your little beacon of light. Guiding you through the bullshit and confusion towards a day that is simply defined by: “doing-whatever-you-want-to-do elopement” (…I’ll work on a less wordy definition later)!

On a beautifully overcast day in Seward, B and T’s Alaskan beach elopement was nothing short of enchanting! Nestled in cozy cabins right across the street from the shoreline, they got ready surrounded by tall trees. Then walked to the beach to exchange their vows with the majestic mountains standing tall across the water, a silent witness of their vows. What made their day even more special was the fact that they were talented florists from Utah who had lovingly crafted their own floral arrangements together. Their online meeting had blossomed into a deep connection that brought them to Alaska, and their elopement was a testament to their shared passion for flowers and each other. Against the serene backdrop of the Alaskan coast, B and T’s love story unfolded with a unique charm that perfectly matched the rugged beauty of their surroundings.

What a whirlwind an adventure! So, get this – K + A met 8 years ago back in Orlando (where they still live!) through mutual friends, and guess what? They just pulled off the most epic Key West elopement ever, and get this: in just a month! Talk about spontaneous and meant-to-be. So, they kicked off their big day chilling and getting ready separately at the Pier House Resort and Spa, getting all dolled up for the adventure ahead. And you won’t believe it, but they hit up the Key Lime Pie Bakery, diving into some killer Key Lime pie (we got the coconut one, so good!) before heading to the Hemingway House – priorities, right?

The two days that I spent with V + D up in the Isle of Skye in Scotland exceeded all of my wildest dreams! Getting to know these two and capture their love was truly such an honor. V is originally from Russia and D from Italy! V lived in the states for sometime, which is where she started her professional wedding photography career! Throughout the years she started doing more destination work which lead to her meeting her now husband while she was photographing a wedding in the UK in 2019! How incredible is that?! Their love story is the kind that novels are written about and they knew from the first moments that they were for each other. V + D faced with my trails during the start of their relationship with being long distant (UK to the US!) and then the pandemic hitting, but they showed everyone that they could (and did!) make it work. When you know you know.

Imagine the city in the morning: people are taking their pets for walks before work or getting their daily exercise in. There is the quite bustle of activity while the city is waking up.

But you and your partner are doing something a little different: getting ready for your urban adventure elopement.
